International Workshop

Electrons, Photons and Plasmons 2024

June 10-12, 2024

Objectives and format

Electron-energy loss spectroscopy (EELS) and scanning near-field optical microscopy (SNOM) are powerful and rapidly developing techniques to study various spatially and temporally textured excitations in solids and molecules, such as plasmons. While they ultimately yield similar information on such modes using respectively electrons and photons as probing particles, the mechanism through which these techniques do so can be radically different. The goal of this workshop is to bring together EELS and SNOM experts in order to exchange on the recent progress in these methods and to discuss their possible symbiosis. The topics will cover fundamental research, instrumentation, modelling and applications.

The program includes invited talks, contributed talks and posters. The maximum number of participants is 70 persons. Young scientists and female participants are highly welcome.
